I am currently prototyping a custom ribbon button to merge several office files into a single PDF.

I plan to use the Word Automation Service to facilitate this however while looking at the documentation it appears to refer to SP2010, we have SP2013 in our environment. I haven't been able to locate any documents regarding this service in SP2013.

Is this documentation still relevant for 2013 or is my Google Fu lacking today?

There is one notable addition to WAS on SharePoint 2013, which is the instant conversions versus the timer job-based conversions. More information can be found at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/15731.sharepoint-2013-new-features-in-word-automation-services.aspx.
